tonight with the election. you know the election that just ended and the one you don't ever really want to hear about again, that one. presidential elections are never just about voting on who gets to run naked through the white house in the middle of the night. i'm looking at you, eisenhower. (laughter) somebody's been working out. it's also about ballot referendums, referenda-- ballo ballots-- if you are talking about ballot initiatives you have to talk california. a state that loves referendums even more than it does putting avocados on on things that it doesn't belong on. what is wrong with you people, that is a cheese steak, why would you mut avocado on a cheese stake. what did they vote, a tax exempt stat to us weirdoes on the bourd walk with snakes on a shoulder, cupcakes must have at least 3% kale. >> dmal call voters agreed to pay more in sales tax and more in income tax for high earners to help close what governor jerry brown calls a $34 billion state budget cap. >> oh. california actually deciding to start trying to pay for some of the [bleep] they want to do. my baby's growi

(laughter) obamacare is just the latest excuse to wriggle out of the social contract. for many years full time benefits like sick days marx ternty leave, pensions, lunch hours, chairs, have disappeared by magically transforming full-time workers into independent contractors or part-time 20-year temp help. (laughter) want to avoid paying half of your employees' social security tax? reclassify them as independent contractors so they pay it all themselves. make them fill out a 1099. that's not a full-time busboy, that's juan co, l.l.c . don't forget to invoice us, juan co.

(laughter) everyday there is (bleep) that i don't know. (laughter) and i've got to tell you, television is -- if you're ever looking to display your ignorance -- (laughter). what a medium!
